Deschamps said:He's a professional and he has managed to avoid the different injuries he could have had,' said Deschamps.
'He may not be 20 years old anymore but he takes very good care of himself. The statistics speak for themselves.
'You can see the influence he has for the team through the goals he scores and his assists. If we then add his capacity to change the game, to get stuck in when we need to defend and don't have the ball, he is one of the greatest players of all-time both in Europe and worldwide.'
This run of consecutive games is a French record.
In all, 30-year-old Griezmann has 92 caps and 37 goals for his country, scoring six times at Euro 2016 to propel them to the final.
'He is one of our technical leaders,' said Deschamps. 'He is a game changer with the way he moves, the control he has with the ball and the goals he is capable of scoring, and his assists. He is an offensive player, a very creative player and has this ability to think outside the box.
'That's something he has proven to us time and again, it's remarkable to watch even through he's happy to get back and defend. Maybe he does that a little bit too much
